Description John Thacker 2004-03-06 16:16:33 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040115

Description of problem:
See upstream bug http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=136406

GStreamer, starting right before the 0.7.5 release, changed the
location of the gconf keys for GStreamer, adding versioning so that
multiple versions of the runtime libraries could be installed at once
with different settings.

/system/gstreamer/default/audiosink ->

and so on.
Unfortunately, gstreamer-properties, in the gnome-media package,
hardcodes in the location of the GConf keys, rather than using the API
provided with GStreamer.  As a result, gstreamer-properties doesn't
actually change any settings with gstreamer 0.7.5 and up, since it
changes the wrong GConf keys.

The right way to solve this is to change gstreamer-properties to use
GStreamer's API.  A quick hack is possible, by changing the hardcoded
values, although this won't work with gstreamer before 0.7.5, and will
have to be changed when GStreamer moves to 0.8.0

In summary, with current Rawhide, gstreamer-properties doesn't do
anything.  gstreamer's defaults can still be changed with
gconf-editor, but that's really not recommended for average users.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. gstreamer-properties
2. try to change a setting

Actual Results:  No effect on GStreamer defaults.

Expected Results:  Changing a setting affects the GStreamer defaults.

Fixed upstream in gnome-media-2.5.5, and thus it will make it in to
FC2 before release.
